Using VAPOR to improve VO administration and operations

Abstract : VAPOR, the Vo Administration and operations PORtal, intends to help small to medium-size grid user communities to perform common VO administration and operational tasks, at a reduced human cost. Such communities may typically have no or few dedicated IT support, have fragmented user groups, and may use resources either dedicated or in an opportunistic manner. A large variety of existing tools and portals are available to assist VO managers and support teams. Although generic, some of them are often designed to meet the needs of somewhat specific contexts, and their operation requires a solid IT support. VAPOR is designed as a generic, experiment-independent tool. It complements existing tools such as SAM Nagios and the VO Operations Portal with novel services, to assist community managers and support teams in performing their daily activities. It does not require any deployment, since an existing instance of VAPOR is ready to support new VOs. In this session, we shall describe the architecture of the portal, the status of the project (that ended in April 2014), and demonstrate its major features: (i) resources monitoring (reports of resources supporting the VO, status indicators, statistical reports, white list of computing elements), and (ii) community data management (detect and handle SE filling-up, clean-up files of former users, deal with dark data and lost files). Finally, we shall discuss future works and features to be implemented.
